FEATURED ARTIST OF THE MONTH – DWAYNE WHITING

Dwayne Whiting says inspiration is the key to getting him charged up to create a piece of art.Dwayne Whiting, a Havelock artist, hangs his work in the Havelock-Craven County Public Library.

“I only do it when I’m inspired to do it,” Whiting said. “If I’m inspired, then it gets done.”

The 56-year-old is the featured artist this month at the Havelock-Craven County Public Library.

Whiting, a Marine Corps avionics man from 1977 to 1991, worked on such aircraft as the C-130, the EA-6, the A-4, the AV-8 and the CH-46, but also did a short stint as a graphic illustrator during his service career.

Most of his career was spent at Cherry Point.

“I have always either painted or drawn something. That was sort of my outlet,” Whiting said. “For me, if I feel inspired by something, that’s when I feel most about doing it. Unless I travel, or meeting somebody new or do something different like jump out of an airplane or zip line or do something like that, then I get inspired.”

Whiting, who lives in Havelock, has worked in oils, pencil, charcoal, colored pencil, liquid lead, acrylic, and watercolor.

“It doesn’t matter,” Whiting said. “I prefer pencil because I’m not that good at it. I’m still working on being good at pencil. Even though some people look at my work and say that it’s good. It’s not where I expected it to be.

“I’ve only done one charcoal and that was of the president of the United States.”

Whiting said he enjoys improving his technique by trying to reproduce the work of the masters.

“I’m not the kind that can just sit down and draw a face just because somebody asks me to,” Whiting said. “I have to be kind of hidden away and do my thing behind the scenes and by myself without anybody eyeballing me all the time.”

But, like many artists, Whiting has changed.

“In the last six months or so, life inside and out has changed for me,” Whiting said. “In a decision to be transformed so that I can become the best person I could possibly be, I took on a quest involving body, mind and spirit. Originally I wanted to simply get back to being me. That has a different meaning for everyone who decides to go on a self-seeking mission. I found that in order to know myself I had to factor in many people. No one is self-made. We all come from somewhere.

“As far as art is concerned, I found it better to participate than to isolate myself like I had in the years prior. So this art showing is more like a promotion for other artists than a promotion for me alone. All of the art shown will be raffled off at no cost on a daily basis until it is all possessed by someone who might hang it on a wall to be appreciated by them and others.” “While it is not mandatory, any donations for the raffled artworks will go towards furthering the art shows cause in continuing to bring this event to the public,” Whiting said.

Those who visit the library can enter the daily raffle. Whiting said the raffle is a way to promote and bring community culture to a higher level by inviting supporters to participate in The Touch Of Class Art Show March 4 to 6 at the Havelock Tourist and Event Center. (New Bern Sun Journal)
